    GL 2007 USA MODEL

    Hello,
    my frend has imported from USA MB GL from 2007. He has DVD navigation, and on DVD writes COMAND (MCS II) VERSION 2007.1. Which map do I need to use for Europe?

    Thanks

    You should chanhe your Comand to European type (Harmann/Becker instead of Alpine). NTG2 Europe maps will work after this change only.

    The complete navigation euipment must be exchanged for an European Becker made Comand unit
    There is no way the Alpine USA unit can be made to function in Europe
    All questions should be directed through the forum

    2006. GL with US specs - Comand APS NTG2.5


    I'm looking to load Europe maps, too...


    Some people claims that it can be done without replacing hardware parts.
    There is some firmware update that can change software from US to ECE...

    ------------------
    The NTG2.5 units are all the same basic unit... except... some have the 6 dvd changer and some only have a single DVD.. very few have a single cd still. Also many euro units do not have the nav drive included which means that you would need to get a drive and install the map software and have the unit coded to enable the map.

    Now on to firmware: ECE units have euro tuning and DAB... US have us tuning and SAT. all NTG2.5 units can be reflashed to have different version firmware but not many people know how to do this..
